I could not agree more. Your art is becoming more and more spectacular. It is a delight for the eye and I hope soon a delight for my hands :D

See you !

Thanks for all your comments ! it is nice to read you all here and also to see what is new by the others ceramists : it is encouraging to go on and to drink tea too. :lol:
I started a reaserch on "white" with differents textures : mat, brillant, rough, bubble, eith nuances from white -cream-beige to grey and so on. It is just the beginnig .

Very, very beautiful ginkgo! Just love 'that drip'! 8) And the color is really working for me, along with the glaze, the texture ... :)

Your works are very inspiring and I covet so many of them, I really need to have one of your creations, must get the captain of the ship to make it so. :wink:

I am working on a "serie" concept : i make bowls and glaze them and choose the number of that "série" . And then I select the one that i am really satisfied with.
The other of that "serie " are just broken.
Here, for exemple, I make 4 macha bowls with tenmoku and ohata glazes. We can see that ther is oil spot and some metallisation of the glaze.

First one :

Second one :

And the 2 others are eliminated.

Just here this is a very little "série" , with only 4 bowls at the beginning.
The purpose of that is to make some collection bowls that will be considerated like little sculptures . I am at the beginning of that process . But I do also others bowls as before !

Another beautiful piece, whose beauty I can even appreciate in my chilly office in Los Angeles, where it has been unusually cool and foggy the past couple of weeks.

I just looked back through your thread, did I read that you are firing in a small electric kiln? If so, that just blows my mind. Beautiful teawares.
